M/V TWIN CAPES is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in DE. The maximum depth is 121-130ft/37-40m.

38°30.90’N, 074° 30.90’W

This site is roughly 26 nautical miles due east of Indian River Inlet Delaware.

The M/V Twin Capes, a ferry christened 43 years ago on the Delaware Bay and retired after thousands of runs between her namesakes Cape Henlopen, Del. and Cape May, N.J., was sunk 06/15/2018 to become part of Delaware’s acclaimed artificial reef system. Twin Capes, whose sinking will expand and enhance fish habitat and offer extraordinary opportunities for deep-sea diving, went down at 11:55 a.m. on the Del-Jersey-Land Inshore Artificial Reef – a reef so named because it lies equidistant from Lewes, Del., Cape May, and Ocean City, Md.

While Radford, at 568 feet, remains the longest ship ever reefed on the East Coast, the 320-foot long Twin Capes may be the best addition yet to Delaware’s artificial reef system for both fishing and recreational diving opportunities.
